The Division of Neurosurgery is actively involved in teaching and education of both the undergraduate and postgraduate medical education. We have been involved in post graduate Neurosurgical training and Neurosurgical Fellowship training since 2003. The UM Masters of Neurosurgery program was started in 2019 and is currently one of two Neurosurgical training programs in Malaysia. We have also organised the FRCS International (Neurosurgery) exams on behalf of the Royal Colleges of Surgeons, UK for the past 2 years.

We are committed in providing continuous medical education by organizing courses, workshop and lectures at various level of higher education as well as for the public. Undergraduates teaching focuses on fundamental neurological examination techniques to establish a good foundation for young doctors. Postgraduates teaching on the other hand focuses on decision making thought process and higher surgical techniques to ensure a high standard of care in neurosurgical practice.


Clinical examination is an important component in making diagnosis. A series of standard examination techniques were produced by neuroscience consultants to ensure proper knowledged are passed to the new generation of doctors.


A strong partnership between patients and doctors is the key to a successful treatment and we would like to thank all our patients for this continous support and trust. We would like to continue improving your health and to train the nation’s future neurosurgeons with all our acquired wealth of knowledge and skills.


We are committed to provide the best clinical practice available to our patients and this aspiration places us as the primary mover in research for treat life threathening disorders. We appreciates the contributions of our patients and collaborators within the nation as well as around the world.
